The Movement Control Order (MCO) had been extended to 18th February
Following the recent spike in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and number of death, which pushes our national health systems beyond its capacity. The government had announced that the MCO which had started since 13rd January will be extended to 18th February 2021
The whole country with exception of Sarawak will be affected.

How long will I have to wait for my bus/train?
As MCO prohibits non-essential travels and cross-district travel, it is likely that the number of passengers will fall throughout this period and operators will be required to adjust their service frequency based on demand.
Apart from this, we support real-time arrival information on KTM (Komuter in Klang Valley & Penang ), Rapidbus (RapidKL & Rapid Penang buses, GoKL Buses, selected PJ City Bus, selected Smart Selangor routes, & Penang CAT routes). Real-time arrival information on KTM is available 60minutes from departure while Rapidbus real-time available once the bus had started its journey from the terminal station.
